Introduction

Here you can learn how to use the Ascend scroll-to menu stack from Weavium. Of course, if you have any questions along the way, you are always welcome to visit the support page and leave us a message. _-


How to Use

Ascend is pretty easy to get set up! Simply drag the stack onto a stacks page, then add scroll items using the ( + ) button in RapidWeaver.

Once you've added your menu items, you are ready to start adding Scroll Markers to your page. If you search the stack library for "Ascend Marker", you will find the Scroll Marker stack.

Drag a marker to the top of the section on your page that you want your menu item to link to, and then give the marker a unique id, for example

"myphotosection"

Now, return to your menu and click on the item that you want to connect to the "myphotosection" marker. In the settings you will see a Marker ID input.

Simply paste the ID of the scroll marker that you want to scroll to, and you're done!

Now when a user clicks on this item, it will scroll to that particular section on the page~

You can learn more about all of the stack options below. : ]


Edit Mode

Show Markers for testing

Ascend Scroll Markers don't actually show up on your live site, but if you want them to (for testing purposes), check this option

General

Display

This dropdown helps you determine when your Ascend scroll-to menu will appear. There are several options to choose from:

  • Always (Shows as soon as the page loads)
  • On Scroll to (Shows when the page is scroll to wherever you place the stack)
  • Between Scroll Markers (Between two specified scroll markers)
  • At Bottom of Page (shows when the bottom of the page is reached)

Open Menu On

Here you can determine whether the menu will be opened on Click or Hover

NOTE: Menus will only open on click for mobile devices, as there is no such thing as hover on mobile

Z-index

Because the Ascend scroll-to menu is fixed, we've included a z-index option for those with other fixed content on their site. If you find that ascend is being hidden behind something, increase this value.

Note: There is no need to adjust z-indexes for multiple Ascend stacks, as this is handled automagically ; ]

Choose where the menu be fixed to the Top or Bottom of the page

Hide default top item

There is a functioning "scroll to top" menu item, added by default. You can hide this item by checking this box.

Allow scroll for long menus

Ascend isn't necessarily meant for long menus, but it is capable of handling them. If your menu is long enough to need scroll bars for scrolling, then check this option. Otherwise, leave it unchecked for a nicer look.

List Type (List or Grid)

One cool thing about Ascend is that it supports BOTH list and grid style menus!!
